The intent of this solicitation is to develop, test and demonstrate zero-carbon or near-zero-carbon (collectively “ZC”), cost-effective, modular and manufactured homes (collectively “prefabricated homes”) that can be readily deployed, particularly in under-resourced communities including California Native American Tribes.

The prefabricated housing industry generally has minimal  research and product innovation, except in meeting code requirements.  By involving key prefabricated and manufactured home industry stakeholders in the development process, they share ownership of the results, and increase the opportunity to gain widespread and immediate market acceptance. Economically integrating energy efficiency solutions at the factory with advancements in manufacturing processes can reduce production costs and make the homes affordable. The results of projects funded by this solicitation can increase cost-effectiveness of energy efficient prefabricated homes in under-resourced communities, including in fire-prone areas.
